  • PluriBASIC 64bit compilations

    Hello Everyone.

    I dont know if what im about to write makes sense or if i am losing my mind, but please bear with me.

    I have a Version of PluriBASIC that already can compile some of the PowerBASIC source code to 64bit
    executables, and what is missing is nothing when compared to what i already did.

    I already got permission to promote it in the PowerBASIC forums, but it is incomplete and i dont seem
    to be able to get the time to finish it.

    Here goes the crazy thing... i was wondering if there are enough people interested in the forums (or one
    patron with enough funds) to raise a pre-sale and raise 2000 to 3000 USD. I would be charging $ 50.00 for
    a yearly subscription to PluriBASIC. I am willing to quit job/ask a couple months off to get it to an acceptable
    state, good enough to sell licenses. But for this i would need to get an alternate way to pay bills and survive
    until done.

    PluriBASIC already exists and works acceptably well. It is a shame that it is in the shelf because of my day
    job. It has been almost ready for months. What is missing are just fractions of the core features. While it already
    supports most of the DDT statements, not all of them will be supported (although at some point the engine may
    upport the syntax so that everybody can write the core code to make them work).

    The ideal thing is that with the same version of PluriBASIC everyone can compile PowerBASIC, Android and PHP
    code (It already does for simple projects, but portions of code are still missing).

    Also the idea is that, when ready, I would like to listen to the community to expand the language and add new
    features (it already has extended features too). If i get enough support and see it is viable, i will put a link to purchase
    what i already got. The supporters/purchasers (any of them) will have the option to be part of a beta team and
    participate in a forum specially for this purpose. Not obligatory of course.

    This may be too far fetched because i would need to sell around 60 presale licenses of a product that while it is not
    terribly broken, is is not complete... so, i might not pull it off. But as i said, it is a shame the PluriBASIC is in the
    shelf at the advanced state it is in, i i thought i should at least try to do it.

    Please email me at [email protected] and let me know if you can aquire a pre-sale license or donate to
    the cause, after that i will evaluate if it is viable.

    With all respect to everybody.
    Brian Alvarez.

    I forgot to mention an important detail:

    PluriBASIC works in a way that it allows anybody to write core features, so, besides helping with the fundraiser
    anybody can collaborate with the code required for the core features.

    The idea is to make PluriBASIC mainly SDK, but with enough collaborators working in the core features, maybe
    even the DDT part could be done in no time.

    Brian.

          Hey Brian!
          It sounds very interesting.

          Is there a chance that Adam would take up funding your effort as an interim solution until he gets a native 64b compiler released? I definitely suggest you send him an email with a proposal - some details for him to be able to chew on.

          If not, then count me in as a +1.

            I am considering an gift of sorts as well. Just have not defined my amount yet but something of at least 500 USD.
            If you can get a good start on basics. It might be worth it. I did purchase your software years agosrky fir support. and I have keep a wills eye on your progress.
            I have seen conversions programs before that have an impact.
            Wwll you can count on me for the 500

            i wish you success.
            We all know the journey too well.

              Hello Gary!! Absolutely! I would love to have Adam on board, but i dont want to push him, as i have reached to him on several occasions and i dont want to be pushy. Of course if he wants to ride the PluriBASIC train he's more than welcome! Thanks, I count on you!

                              I for one would like to see this happen.
                              I see 6 "yes" here.
                              What can we do to get 50 yes's?
